Michael Schiavo on my show Thursday at 8AM ET.

A religious zealot offered $250,000 to anyone who would kill me. My two babies were threatened with death. I was condemned by the president, the majority leaders of the House and Senate, the governor of Florida, the pope, and the right-wing media, all because I was doing what Terri—the woman I loved—wanted.

I didn’t respond to their attacks.
I didn’t confront their lies.
Until now…

You may know the headlines about what came to be known as The Schiavo Case, but that doesn’t mean you know what really happened. And you certainly don’t know why. Frankly, that’s because my efforts while Terri was alive were concentrated on giving her the best care possible, and waging the legal battle to ensure that the promise I’d made to her—that she wouldn’t be kept alive artificially—would be kept. I didn’t have time for public relations. I didn’t have time to expose the hidden agendas of all sorts of people, most of whom wouldn’t have known who Terri was if they passed her on the street. That’s why I wrote this book, and why it’s called Terri: The Truth.

When Terri collapsed in February, 1990, I was certain that she would recover. My love for her kept that hope alive in me for years. But there came a time when I had to face the medical facts. Now, I can finally tell you what caused me to conclude that it was time to let her go. And I can also answer the questions that seem to trouble many people: why didn’t I just divorce Terri and allow her parents to take over as her legal guardians? And how could I be in a relationship with another woman, and have two children with her, while Terri was still alive?

I loved Terri from the time I met her in a college class in 1983, and I’ve never stopped loving her. Throughout the fifteen years since she collapsed, I devoted my life to her care. The people—from ordinary citizens to the highest elected politicians—who said otherwise, who called me a murderer, were either completely misinformed, or had ulterior motives.

I have no argument with those who may honestly disagree with me and the choices I have made. But honest disagreement over principle is not what has characterized this story, in my opinion.

I’ve now had almost a year to reflect on The Schiavo Case, on what it means to me, and what I believe it means to America. As public and contentious as it was, at its heart is an agonizing decision that many Americans may have to face someday. It is my hope that this story may help guide their decisions should that time come.

What should I ask him?

Marchers say gringos, not illegals, have to go!

WorldNetDaily is reporting...

WASHINGTON – While debates about guest-worker programs for illegal aliens take place in the corridors of power, in the streets of America's big cities no amnesty is being offered by activists calling for the expulsion of most U.S. citizens from their own country.

While politicians debate the fate of some 12 million people residing in the U.S. illegally, the Mexica Movement, one of the organizers of the mass protest in Los Angeles this week, has already decided it is the "non-indigenous," white, English-speaking U.S. citizens of European descent who have to leave what they call "our continent."

The pictures and captions tell the story.

"This is our continent, not yours!" exclaimed one banner.

"We are indigenous! The only owners of this continent!" said another.

"If you think I'm illegal because I'm a Mexican, learn the true history, because I'm in my homeland," read another sign.

Actress SHARON STONE is adamant teenagers should be prepared to engage in oral sex, if it saves from them the dangers of unprotected penetrative sex. The BASIC INSTINCT spends much of her time away from Hollywood working as an activist raising AIDS awareness, and she always carries condoms with her to hand out in a bid to increase safe sex levels. She explains, "I was in the store the other day and I watched a young girl trying on clothes, showing her abdomen. "Her mother was trying to talk to her about not being inappropriately luring. I said, 'Gee that would look much nicer with a camisole under.' "Her mother walked away, and I said to the girl, 'I'd like to give you a two-minute conversation about sex.' "Young people talk to me about what to do if they're being pressed for sex? I tell them (what I believe): oral sex is a hundred times safer than vaginal or anal sex. "If you're in a situation where you cannot get out of sex, offer a blow job. I'm not embarrassed to tell them."

Ah the joys of moral relativism! I find this even more disturbing than the Britney Spears statue. Just another sign of the coming apocalypse!

Why is the Catholic Bishop defending criminals?

Bishop Urges Aid For Immigrants
The time to act is now.

Those were the words of Bishop Thomas Wenski, Central Florida's top-ranking Catholic, as he urged priests, nuns and social leaders to mobilize their communities against what he described as anti-immigrant legislation during the "Justice for Immigrants: A Journey of Hope" Pastoral Awareness Day in Winter Park on Saturday.

"No human being should ever be reduced to being a problem," he said to a crowd of almost 300 members from the Diocese of Orlando, which includes Polk County.

The U.S. Congress is debating immigration law reform that will decide the fate of about 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States and the way in which another million will arrive.

Those who attended Saturday's meeting, which included the Rev. Norman Farland of Wahneta and volunteers from Farmworkers Ministry of Auburndale, were pressed to write, call and e-mail their state and local representatives in opposition to legislation that would harm immigrants. Attendees were urged to gather at least 10 people to join in the effort.

The event is part of the national Catholic Campaign for Immigration Reform, which calls for global anti-poverty efforts, expanded opportunities to reunify families, and a temporary worker program that includes a path to permanent residency and labor protections equal to U.S. workers, among others.

If the Bishop really cared about JUSTICE here are some of the things he'd support...
- Add More Border Patrol Agents
- High-Tech Security Fences on the Mexican Border
- Make the Mexican Border Priority #1
- Establish Work Site Enforcement
- Require Employers to Prove Worker Citizenship
- Make immigration data available to other agencies

Rich Lowry of NRO on Jobs Americans Won’t Do? Think again!

A core element of the American creed has always been a belief in the dignity of labor — at least until now. Supporters of a guest-worker program for Mexican laborers say that "there are jobs that no Americans will do." This is an argument that is a step away from suggesting that there are jobs that Americans shouldn't do.

President George Bush, a strong supporter of the guest-worker program, has long said that "family values don't stop at the Rio Grande." We are supposed to believe, however, that the work ethic does stop there — it is only south of it that people can be found who are willing to work in construction, landscaping and agricultural jobs. So, without importing those people into our labor market, these jobs would go unfilled, disrupting the economy (and creating an epidemic of unkempt lawns in Southern California).

This is sheer nonsense. According to a new survey by the Pew Hispanic Center, illegals make up 24 percent of workers in agriculture, 17 percent in cleaning, 14 percent in construction, and 12 percent in food production. So 86 percent of construction workers, for instance, are either legal immigrants or Americans, despite the fact that this is one of the alleged categories of untouchable jobs.

Diversity is a one way street

School Decides to Cancel Diversity Day Rather than
Include Viewpoint of Christians and Former Homosexuals

Viroqua, WI - Viroqua High School officials chose to cancel tomorrow's Diversity Day activities after Liberty Counsel presented legal precedent requiring inclusion of the viewpoints of Christians and former homosexuals.

The school scheduled sessions for the students that presented the viewpoints of Hmong, Jews, Muslims, Native Americans, African-Americans, homosexuals, Latinos, Buddhists, the physically disadvantaged, and the economically disadvantaged, but not Christians or former homosexuals. Diversity Day would have been held tomorrow, March 23, 2006.

After a school official stated that the viewpoints of Christians and former homosexuals would be excluded, a resident contacted Liberty Counsel on behalf of many other concerned Viroqua residents.

On March 9, Liberty Counsel sent a letter to the District Administrator, explaining that the censorship of the viewpoints of Christians and former homosexuals violated the Establishment Clause and the Fourteenth Amendment equal protection guarantee. Liberty Counsel sent another letter on March 14 to the District Administrator and Board of Education. Two days later, the District Administrator confirmed in a telephone call that Diversity Day had been cancelled.

In 2004, the Board also cancelled Diversity Day in response to a citizen petition, but then reinstated it after spring elections changed the members on the Board. Unlike 2004, however, this time school officials were confronted with precedent from a federal district court in Michigan that ruled unconstitutional a similar exclusion from a Diversity Day panel.

Matt Staver, president and general counsel of Liberty Counsel, stated: "We are pleased that the District cancelled Diversity Day instead of censoring the viewpoints of Christians and former homosexuals. One of the Diversity Day organizers labeled the former homosexual's viewpoint as 'non-positive.' This is yet another attempt to indoctrinate our youth with the harmful message that homosexuals cannot change. While touting the message of tolerance, homosexual activists refuse to be tolerant of opposing viewpoints. Our youth deserve to know the truth about homosexuality - that people can choose to overcome same-sex attractions and that acting on those attractions results in devastating physical, mental, and spiritual consequences."

Matt joins me, PC, Thursday morning at 8AM ET to talk about it.

George Bush vs Senile Old Lady

Is it just me or does Helen Thomas remind you of Jack Nicholson as The Joker in Batman?
They both put their lipstick on the same way.

"Wait till the get a load of me!" -The Joker

HUGHHEWITT.COM – Helen Thomas proffered a typically balanced, fair question: “All of the reasons you gave for going to war have been proven wrong, so what I want to know is—why did you really want to go to war?”

He called Helen “flat wrong” about four times—”with all due respect” of course. He had to shush her four times to finish his answer.

Charges Dropped Against Female Teacher in Florida Who Had Sex with 14-Year-Old Student

Marion County, Florida, prosecutors dropped charges Tuesday (March 21st) against Debra Lafave, a 25-year-old former teacher accused of having sex with a 14-year-old male student. The decision was announced hours after Circuit Judge Hale Stancil rejected a plea deal because it didn't include prison time, saying it, quote, "shocks the conscience of this court." By dropping the charges, the boy won't have to testify, and Assistant State Attorney Richard Ridgway explained, "The court may be willing to risk the well-being of the victims in this case in order to force it to trial. I am not." A psychiatrist who'd examined the boy said at a previous hearing that he suffered extreme anxiety from the media coverage of the case and didn't want to testify. The boy's family had pushed for a plea deal because they didn't want him to have to take the stand.

Lafave was sentenced last November to three years house arrest and seven years' probation under a plea deal in Hillsborough County, where she was charged with having sex with the boy in a classroom and at her home, and that sentence stands. She'd been charged in Marion County for having sex with the boy in a SUV, and the plea deal sought would have had the same punishment.

In a news conference yesterday after the charges were dropped, Lafave blamed her actions on bipolar disorder, and said she is getting treatment. The attractive blue-eyed blonde apologized to the boy, and said, "I pray with all my heart that the young man and his family will be able to move on with their lives." She also placed blame on the media for overblown coverage of the case, saying the boy's, quote, "privacy had been violated," and looked to the future:

Do you think Lafave should have gotten jail time for having sex with her 14-year-old student?

Do you think a 14-year-old boy being molested by a woman is less harmful than a 14-year-old girl being molested by a man and should be treated differently?

What do you think of Lafave blaming her actions on bipolar disorder, blaming the media for violating the boy's privacy and blowing the story out of proportion, and calling herself a good Christian woman and the molestation a bump in the road?

5-year-olds forced to learn about AIDS

Starting Monday (March 20th), kindergartners in New York City public schools will learn about HIV and AIDS. According to New York's Daily News, students will be taught that HIV is a "germ" and "not easy to get." Teachers will also be required to inform kids that the virus could lead to AIDS, which is hard to "get well" from. But schools won't mention that HIV is transmitted through sexual contact until students reach the fourth grade. It's all part of New York's new mandatory HIV/AIDS curriculum that's stirring up some controversy among teachers and parents.

Education Department spokeswoman Kelly Devers thinks that it's important to teach young children about the disease, saying, "The curriculum is absolutely developmentally appropriate and contains positive messages about staying healthy." But some parents and teachers don't agree, arguing that kindergartners are too young to talk about HIV and AIDS. Some elementary school teachers said they don't think students younger than eight will understand what they are being told about the fatal virus.

What do you think about AIDS education in kindergarten?

Why are we targeting a group that's not at risk? They don't use IV drugs they're not sexually active. If knowledge is power as some callers said why aren't we teaching kids about other STDs not just HIV/AIDS? My beef is we're robbing kids of their innocence.

Radical Imam Dremali Runs From His Past, Avoids UCF Jihad By Da'wa Fest

March 17, 2006 - San Francisco, CA - - Since Militant Islam Monitor and Joe Kaufman The Visiting Jihadist combined to call attention [University of Central Florida Slated To Become Cultural Jihad Hub and University Of Central Florida Funding Islamist Da'wa Event] to the University of Central Florida's - "Returning to Our Rabb" [Lord] - excursion into cultural jihad, both university officials and Da'wa program presenters have scrambled furiously to quell the mounting public outcry.

We are pleased to announce that Imam Dremali has been forced to withdraw from the event due to our public awareness campaign.

Dremali is currently ensconced in Des Moines Iowa - laying low - and is clearly unwilling to face the controversy that his presence at UCF would cause.

The Imam is an Egyptian by birth and fled to the United States because he was considered too radical even by the standards of his native Egypt.

Since arriving in the United States Dremali has been involved in a non-stop campaign of terror-friendly activities - for example, his previous mosque, the Islamic Center of Boca Raton recently saw the arrest of an al-Qaeda operative, Rafiq Sabir and several of the ICBR founders and trustees had links to Sami Al Arian. ICBR member Bassem Al Halabi, was implicated for exporting military equipment to Syria, and the mosque spokesman [a convert to Islam] fled to Saudi Arabia in 2003. The current spokesman, Dan McBride was arrested last year for tax fraud.

Operation Swarmer

US launches major offensive against Sunni insurgents

More than 50 US warplanes were today involved in the biggest air offensive launched by the Americans in Iraq since the 2003 invasion, the US military said.
A huge air and land offensive was launched this morning against insurgents in an area north-east of the volatile town of Samarra, which is 60 miles north of Baghdad.

The US military, which announced details of the operation late this afternoon, said some 1,500 Iraqi and US troops and 200 tactical vehicles were involved in Operation Swarmer, which it said would last several days.

The operation began with Iraqi and US forces conducting a combined air and ground assault before forces from the 2nd Commando Brigade seized buildings in the area.

Near the end of the first day of the operation, a number of enemy weapons caches had been captured, the US military said. The caches included "artillery shells, explosives, [improvised explosive devices] IED-making materials, and military uniforms".

Insurgents in Samarra, which is a predominantly Sunni town, stoked sectarian tensions last month by destroying a major Shia shrine, the Golden Mosque, prompting a wave of revenge killings and violence against Sunnis.

Samarra is a key city in the Salahuddin province, which is a major part of the so-called Sunni triangle where insurgents have been active since shortly after the US-led invasion three years ago. Saddam Hussein was captured in the province, not far from its capital, Tikrit.

Getting America Right

I was joined today by Edwin Feulner, president of The Heritage Foundation to talk about...

Where did we take a wrong turn?That’s what proud conservatives are asking. The era of liberal dominance is finally over, but sometimes you wouldn’t know it. Government spending is out of control, huge waves of illegal immigration threaten our security and our American identity, more and more Americans look to Washington for the “quick fix,” the government grabs for more power at the expense of our liberty, American businesses are fleeing overseas, and terrorism threatens us more than ever. How do we deal with these crises when our leaders refuse to?

By following Edwin J. Feulner and Doug Wilson’s unique and practical six-point plan —specific steps that every one of us can take to put America back on course. As conservative leaders—Feulner as president of the nation’s preeminent think tank, the Heritage Foundation; Wilson as chairman of America’s leading conservative news and community website,—the authors know that what will rescue us now are the things that have always made this nation great: free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, a strong national defense, and the rule of law. We must demand accountability and a return to our core principles.

Getting America Right also reveals:

Stunning real-world examples of government run amok, and how it hurts you.

The politicians who are selling out, and the brave souls who are fighting for what’s right .

How to restore fiscal discipline among Washington’s pork-addicted pols—Feulner and Wilson identify ridiculous programs we could slash immediately, with no harm done .

The blueprint for getting the federal government out of our way and out of our pockets .

The threats Washington is ignoring, and the steps we must take at home and abroad to ensure our security .

What you can do to hold politicians accountable .

What is at risk if we fail? Nothing less than the freedom, prosperity, and security of ourselves and our children and grandchildren. We must get it right—each and every one of us. And we need to start today. As Newt Gingrich writes in his foreword to Getting America Right, “The blueprint for our action—yours and mine—is contained within the pages of this remarkable book.”

Beware the Ides of March!

Julius Caesar was assassinated on this day in 44 BC, by a number of Roman Senators, including his friend Brutus. On this day, we're supposed to be aware of backstabbing friends.

"Remember March, the Ides of March remember. Did not great Julius bleed for justice' sake? What villain touched his body, that did stab and not for justice?" - William Shakespeare

Anderson’s first autopsy was conducted by Dr. Charles F. Siebert, a man who, a little more than a year ago, remarked that “the prostate gland and testes are unremarkable” after examining the body of Donna Faye Reed, who died in a Florida tornado. (Reed, of course, was a woman.)

Pathologist: Sickle cell didn't kill teen
Second autopsy supports suspicions of boot-camp victim's family

A well-known pathologist who observed Monday's 12-hour autopsy of Martin Lee Anderson said the 14-year-old did not die from the sickle-cell trait as originally reported by the Bay County medical examiner.

Dr. Michael Baden, who has reviewed a number of high-profile cases, including the murder of civil-rights leader Medgar Evers, observed the autopsy, the second one performed in the case, on behalf of Anderson's family. The teen died after being beaten by guards at the Bay County Sheriff's boot camp. Baden said it was clear that Anderson did not die of natural causes.

''My opinion is that he died because of what you see in the videotape,'' said Baden, referring to a surveillance video showing guards kicking and punching Anderson's limp body shortly after he arrived at the boot camp Jan. 5.

The suspect in this month's attack on the UNC-CH campus has written a letter to ABC11 Eyewitness News. Eyewitness News received the letter Monday, in response to our request for an interview. It was sent from Central Prison in Raleigh and dated Friday, March 10. Addressed to ABC11 Eyewitness News anchor Amber Rupinta, the two-page letter includes Taheri-azar's explanation of what he was trying to accomplish in the attack.

"Allah gives permission in the Koran for the followers of Allah to attack those who have raged war against them, with the expectation of eternal paradise in case of martyrdom and/or living one's life in obedience of all of Allah's commandments found throughout the Koran's 114 chapters..."

"The U.S. government is responsible for the deaths of and the torture of countless followers of Allah, my brothers and sisters. My attack on Americans at UNC-CH on March 3rd was in retaliation for similar attacks orchestrated by the U.S. government on my fellow followers of Allah in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, and other Islamic territories. I did not act out of hatred for Americans, but out of love for Allah instead."

Criminal Records, Bogus Licenses Among Truckers at Key U.S. Port

The report showed that recently the Department of Homeland Security had done some looking into how carefully the truck drivers who are allowed full access to our ports had been screened before being given such clearance.

DHS checked 9000 truckers. 4500 of those checked had criminal backgrounds - some of them quite extensive with homicide, assault, weapons charges, sex offenses, arson, drug dealing, identity theft, cargo theft, MS-13 gang affiliation, transporting massive amounts of narcotics (thirteen pounds of cocaine in a single instance), and counterfeiting (half million dollars found in one instance.)

But that wasn't the worst of the discoveries - 500 of those checked were completely bogus identities - leaving officials unsure of who these people were. Fake drivers licenses, and other forms of ID were used to gain port security clearance access.

39 of those checked had direct links to Iran.

So forget about the stupid feckless UAE story, it has no teeth. Instead imagine an Iranian trucker using a fake ID, secures clearances, and drives a 40 container filled with traditional explosives and one suitcase nuke into the middle of New York Harbor.

Buh Bye Manhattan...and 8-13 million people.

Democratic Senator Wants Bush Censured Over Domestic Eavesdropping

Democratic Senator Russ Feingold of Wisconsin said Sunday (March 12th) on ABC's This Week that he'll introduce a resolution to censure President Bush for ordering domestic eavesdropping on U.S. citizens without a warrant. Feingold said, "It's an unusual step. It's a big step. But what the president did by consciously and intentionally violating the Constitution and laws of this country with this illegal wiretapping, has to be answered."

However, Feingold's proposal isn't likely to go anywhere in the Republican-controlled Congress, and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist of Tennessee said on This Week that Feingold, quote, "is just wrong. He is flat wrong. He is dead wrong." Frist said censuring Bush would give America's enemies the impression that the president doesn't have the nation's full support.

Under the post-9/11 program, Bush approved warrantless spying on the phone calls and e-mails of people in the U.S. communicating with people overseas who are suspected of having al-Qaida ties. Critics say it violates constitutional protections against unreasonable searches as well as the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Service Act. But backers argue the president has constitutional powers to conduct the searches, and also say a law enacted by Congress after 9/11 authorizing the use of military force gave Bush the right to approve the eavesdropping.

This is called grasping for straws. You need to know that Russ Feingold wants to run for President in 2008. In my opinion any President that isn't monitoring incoming calls from Al-Qaida in a post 9-11 America should be fired for gross incompetence!

Protesters at military funerals rile legislators

2 propose bills to put limits on 'un-American' actions

Inside Bristol Road Church of Christ, about 700 mourners grieved the death of Army Pfc. Allan Morr from rural Shiawassee County.

Outside, protesters from a tiny church in Kansas held signs proclaiming "America is doomed" and "Don't worship the dead."

But the protesters aren't against the war. Westboro Baptist Church is protesting America's tolerance of gay culture. Soldiers, the church says, represent a nation that does not condemn gays and are thus being punished by God.

The group has picketed about 100 military funerals nationwide, including Morr's last week in Flint.

With the group's recent attention to Michigan, lawmakers here hope to join a growing number of states restricting funeral protests.

"This is un-American, ridiculous, obnoxious behavior," said state Rep. Rick Jones, R-Grand Ledge.

"No parent should ever have to bury their child and go through this type of treatment."

Jones and Rep. Judy Emmons, R-Sheridan, hope to introduce bills in the next few weeks. The legislation would limit the length of demonstrations at funerals and memorial services, create a buffer between the service and the protest, and categorize such demonstrations as disorderly conduct.

Gov. Jennifer Granholm's office said she supports the general idea.

"Gov. Granholm is appalled at the conduct of these protesters and would willingly consider legislation that would limit these protesters' access to funerals for our fallen soldiers," spokeswoman Liz Boyd said.

Crotty issues county wide gag order???

The Orlando Sentinel is reporting...
Orange bans comment on Crotty deals
A memo urging staff not to talk to reporters comes 3 days after a probe of the mayor was announced.

Orange County officials Thursday barred county employees from talking to reporters about any government dealings with Orange County Mayor Rich Crotty's former business partner, Daryl Carter.

The orders to keep the county's professional staff silent came three days after Gov. Jeb Bush assigned a special prosecutor to probe a lucrative South Florida land deal that Crotty and Carter partnered on in 2002 and 2003.

"I'm tired of this witch hunt," County Attorney Tom Drage said of reporter inquiries. "We're not going to go into what happened three or four years ago in the county. We're not going to have this issue tried in the media."

One of Drage's deputies drafted a memo urging "that County employees should refrain from making public comments about matters that will be covered by the pending investigation."

The memo continued: "Advance public statements [by county staff] would serve to preempt the Special Prosecutor's function which we have no desire of doing."

Should fathers be able to abort their financial responsibility?

The National Center for Men has prepared a lawsuit--nicknamed Roe v. Wade for Men--to be filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Michigan on behalf of a 25-year-old computer programmer ordered to pay child support for his ex-girlfriend's daughter.

The suit addresses the issue of male reproductive rights, contending that lack of such rights violates the U.S. Constitution's equal protection clause.

The gist of the argument: If a pregnant woman can choose among abortion, adoption or raising a child, a man involved in an unintended pregnancy should have the choice of declining the financial responsibilities of fatherhood. The activists involved hope to spark discussion even if they lose.

Why are more Americans distrustful of Muslims?

Anti-Muslim sentiment is on the rise, a new poll suggests, the Washington Post reports:

As the war in Iraq grinds into its fourth year, a growing proportion of Americans are expressing unfavorable views of Islam, and a majority now say that Muslims are disproportionately prone to violence, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

The poll found that nearly half of Americans--46 percent--have a negative view of Islam, seven percentage points higher than in the tense months after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, when Muslims were often targeted for violence.
"Muslims were often targeted for violence" is a drastic overstatement; occasionally would have been more accurate. But how could it be that Americans are more hostile to Islam today than they were in the immediate aftermath of an Islamist massacre in New York?

The media's antiwar bias is feeding the public's anti-Muslim bias. By relentlessly focusing on the bad news in Iraq and playing down the good, journalists perpetuate an image of the Muslim world as a hostile, uncivilized place.

Dubai Company Says It Will Transfer Operations at U.S. Ports to a U.S. Entity

A Dubai-owned company moved yesterday (March 9th) to end the weeks-long controversy over its plans to take over some operations at six major U.S. ports. In an announcement from DP World's top executive read on the Senate floor by GOP Senator John Warner of Virginia, the company said it, quote, "will transfer fully the U.S. operations ... to a United States entity." No details were given, but the surprise announcement also said it was, quote, "based on an understanding that DP World will not suffer economic loss."

Many congressional Republicans welcomed the announcement, but others, along with some Democrats, withheld judgment until learning more about what would happen. GOP Rep. Peter King of New York, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee who'd been a leading critic of the deal, said, "It would have to be an American company with no links to DP World," and Democratic Senator Charles Schumer of New York said, "To simply say that the U.S. entity will be separate isn't enough. How will it be separate? How thick is the wall?" The White House also welcomed the decision, which means President Bush won't have to follow through with a threat to veto any legislation blocking the original deal, with spokesman Scott McClellan saying, "It does provide a way forward and resolve the matter."

Yesterday's announcement came one day after the House Appropriations Committee voted 62-2 to block the deal, and GOP congressional leaders told Bush privately Thursday morning that Congress was ready to act despite his veto threat. In addition to their own reservations about the deal, members of Congress are facing re-election in November and the American public has been overwhelmingly against it.

When the deal became public nearly a month ago, questions immediately began to be raised by members of both parties about the safety of the deal. Critics pointed to the fact that the United Arab Emirates -- of which Dubai is a part -- was an operational and financial base for the 9/11 hijackers, as well as a transfer point for shipments of smuggled nuclear components sent to Iran, North Korea and Libya by a Pakistani scientist. But Bush vowed to veto any blocking legislation, saying the UAE has been a strong ally in the war on terrorism.

Are you satisfied with the announcement from DP World, or are you, like King and Schumer, still a little leery and want to see the details to make sure the American entity that will take over is totally independent?

Do you think the White House, seeing that they were going to lose, asked Dubai to do this instead of Bush having to veto the legislation and then be overridden?

Military desertion rates "plunge," and USA Today says it's bad news.

The U.S. military's desertion rate "has plunged since the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001," USA Today reports:

The Army, Navy and Air Force reported 7,978 desertions in 2001, compared with 3,456 in 2005. The Marine Corps showed 1,603 Marines in desertion status in 2001. That had declined by 148 in 2005.

The desertion rate was much higher during the Vietnam era. The Army saw a high of 33,094 deserters in 1971--3.4% of the Army force. But there was a draft and the active-duty force was 2.7 million.

Desertions in 2005 represent 0.24% of the 1.4 million U.S. forces.
Accompanying the story is a chart that shows Army desertions have declined every year since 2001.

So how does USA package this good news for the military? As bad news: The headline reads "8,000 Desert During Iraq War," and the first paragraph begins:

At least 8,000 members of the all-volunteer U.S. military have deserted since the Iraq war began, Pentagon records show, although . . .

Many in the press seem determined to follow their Iraq-as-Vietnam script, whether or not it's consistent with the facts.

Church Hosts Free Porn Weekend

Clermont, Fl - To help raise awareness regarding issues surrounding pornography within its community, Clermont Fellowship Church will host a free porn weekend. The event will be held at a local high school.

Focus on pornography addiction and how to protect your children from porn. Helpful resources will be provided for the community. Former porn star & prostitute "Shelly Lubben" & pastor & founder will be guest speakers.

The Fellowships's lead Pastor Tom Casolaro says, "Porn is at epidemic proportions, it's destroying families, churches, and the fabric of our society, and it's time the church stands up and says something."

Was this the work of a Methodist Sleeper Cell?

3 Students Charged in Ala. Church Fires

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- For weeks, church congregants in rural Alabama were on high alert, eager to find out who was burning down their churches. The answer,
authorities now say, was three college students who took a prank too far.

But there also was bitterness and bewilderment as churchgoers learned of their alleged motives — and that two suspects were students at Birmingham-Southern College.

The private liberal arts school, where tuition is $21,000 a year, is associated with the United Methodist Church.

Why are the Methodist attacking the Baptists? Why hasn't the United Methodist Church publicly denounced this act of terrorism? Should we start profiling Methodists at airports. I'm calling on Jeb Bush to push legislation that would ban the sale of lighters and gasoline to Methodists, they can't be trusted!

Moseley told agents that the three set fire to five Baptist churches in the early morning hours of Feb. 3. A witness quoted Cloyd as saying Moseley did it "as a joke and it got out of hand."

If this is a joke what's the punch line?

The Radio Equalizer: Brian Maloney stops by with the scoop on Air America

Didn't Bush say the No. 1 security threat facing the world is nuclear weapons in the wrong hands?

It's cliche to say, but it really is "a dangerous world we live in" and, now, even President Bush recognizes that. Or why else would his Administration have given India a "pass" on The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)?

As Frank Gaffney, president of the Center for Security Policy explains in Monday's Washington Times (below), the threats that North Korea and Iran pose to the Free World, coupled with their abject violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, has prompted the U.S. to recognize an omnious post-Cold War reality: the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) is dead.

Gaffney was a member of the Reagan Defense Department which helped bring about the end to the former Soviet Union through tough "Peace through Strength" policies. Check out his new book War Footing.

Lauer for the Defense: Matt Asks Colorado Teacher "Were You Set Up?"

Turns out the real culprit in the Colorado kerfuffle over the teacher who compared Pres. Bush to Hitler is . . . the student who complained about it. Just ask Matt Lauer.

Interviewing teacher Jay Bennish this morning, Lauer laid out this sympathetic scenario:

Lauer: "The family here, the student's family, didn't go to the school board with this tape."

Bennish: "They never contacted me."

Lauer: "They shopped it around to conservative media outlets and finally released it to one and created an uproar. On the tape you can hear Sean Allen [the student in question] asking you questions that seem to be egging you on a little bit. Do you feel you were set up?"

Prosecutor will probe Crotty's land deal

Gov. Bush's appointment follows a request by State Attorney Lawson Lamar for an investigation into the Orange mayor's partnership.
Gov. Jeb Bush on Monday evening appointed an outside prosecutor to investigate Orange County Mayor Rich Crotty's lucrative partnership with a real-estate broker whose projects have often come before the county government for approval.

Bush's appointment of southwest Florida prosecutor Stephen B. Russell followed a request by Orange-Osceola State Attorney Lawson Lamar for an investigation of "possible violations" of state law in a one-year investment with broker Daryl Carter in which Crotty made $112,000 between September 2002 and September 2003.

Crotty said he has done nothing wrong and said he hopes the investigation is completed in "as timely a manner as possible."

"People know I have a long history of transparency," he said. "I have a reputation of being forthright."

Facing re-election this fall, Crotty also said, "One would question the timing of a political agenda" that brings a potentially embarrassing investigation "just six months before my election."
Mayor Crotty joined me this morning to discuss the story. Twice I asked him if he'd give the money back? I didn't get a straight answer.

MSM Sorry They Didn't Cover For NEA

Orlando Sentinel ombudsman Manning Pynn apologizes for unknowingly exposing incompetence in the Florida school system. In a story that ran last week about how middle-income kids aren't getting what they should from schools, the Sentinel ran a picture of a teacher standing in front of a whiteboard with the word "government' written on it. Except the "r" was missing.

Wouldn't you want to know if your children were in a classroom with a teacher who can't spell 'government'? Not if you're a left-bent journalist covering for the education status quo.

Although that photo had been in the newsroom since it was taken Dec. 14 and had been seen by numerous editors, no one noticed the misspelling until early the morning of publication, well into the press run -- too late to redesign the front page. "We should have caught it," Photo Editor Ken Lyons lamented. He's right, of course. But if editors had caught the misspelling before the presses rolled, should they have substituted another picture? Would that act of seeming compassion have distorted reality and shielded readers from the truth? Yes and definitely not.
The real story here is that public education is a broken system, and journalists deliberately try to frame this story in a way that fuels more money being poured into the broken system rather than in a way to promote vouchers. Why? The short answer is control. When you have a voucher, you choose where you child goes and what they learn to a much larger extent. That is antithetical to journalists who would much rather your child be indoctrinated in a system that rejects God, promotes sex, "alternative lifestyles", and embraces tranny teachers.

Couric Bashes “Catholic Town” For “Infringing on Civil Liberties”

Today co-host Katie Couric savaged Dominos Pizza founder Thomas Monaghan and Paul Marinelli, CEO of Barron Collier Company (BCC). The two appeared on the March 3 edition of the show to promote Ave Maria, a new Catholic university in Florida and the planned community that will surround it. Couric, interviewing the two men at 7:34AM EST, appeared openly hostile. She stated, "I think people will see this community as eschewing diversity and promoting intolerance." Mr. Marinelli denied this claim, but that didn’t stop Couric from playing the bigotry card.

Couric: "At the same time, you can understand how people would hear some of these things and be like, wow, this is really infringing on civil liberties and freedom of speech and right to privacy and all sorts of basic tenets this country was founded on? Right?"

Here are two idiots that didn't get the memo that abortion is legal in the USA.

#1 Teen Burned Alive Over Pregnancy Likely Not Pregnant
A 17-year-old girl who was doused with gasoline and burned alive because her ex-boyfriend thought she was having a baby was likely not pregnant, according to a medical examiner involved in the case.
#2 Abortion charge against woman won't hold up, attorney says
SUFFOLK — The defense attorney for a woman accused of shooting herself in the stomach and killing her unborn child says an abortion charge won’t hold up in court.

Suffolk’s lead prosecutor says his office is still investigating the crime.

Tammy Skinner, 22, is charged with inducing an abortion and filing a false police report. Prosecutors have already said they plan to drop a firearms charge because it doesn’t apply.

Virginia Beach lawyer Kevin Martingayle, who met with Skinner on Friday, said he doesn’t think the abortion charge applies either.

“All of the provisions of the law are aimed at third parties, not at pregnant mothers,” Martingayle said. “We do not read laws broadly to express outrage. We don’t assume anything is illegal.”

Muslim Man Attempts to Kill UNC Pedestrians to Seek "Retribution for Muslims"

Mohammed Reza Taheriazar

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill police are investigating an incident that occurred shortly before noon today in which a Jeep, driven by an native of Iran who was acting out of revenge against non-Muslims, drove through the common area known on campus as the Pit, injuring six people. The injured were taken to UNC Hospitals. None of the victims appeared to be seriously injured.

Campus police said they had a suspect in custody. He was identified as Mohammed Reza Taheriazar, 23, a UNC student as recently as fall 2005. Police said they would charge the suspect with multiple counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

New information from the scene indicates that Taheriazar told police he was "seeking retribution for the treatment of Muslims around the world." The vehicle used in the attack was rented earlier in the day, according to police. Taheriazar reportedlytold police he tried to rent "the biggest SUV he could find" to use in the attack. As he was taken into custody, a police SWAT team surrounded a Carrboro apartment complex where Taheriazar reportedly lived, based on information collected at the scene.

Murtha Says U.S. Presence in Iraq Benefits Iran and al-Qaida

Democratic Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania said yesterday (March 5th) that the U.S. presence in Iraq is hurting the war on terrorism and benefits only Iran and al-Qaida. Murtha is a defense hawk who has turned against the war in Iraq after initially supporting it, and drew widespread attention after calling in November for the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.

Appearing on CBS' Face the Nation Sunday, Murtha said, "The only people who want us in Iraq are Iran and al-Qaida. And I talked to a top-level commander ... and he said China wants us there also. Why? Because we're depleting out resources ... our troop resources and our fiscal resources." He continued, "We have a situation where our military is in such bad shape, it couldn't deploy to a second front. And the Iranians know this. North Korea knows it. China knows it. We're depleting our resources in Iraq."

Murtha characterized the conflict in Iraq as a civil war that must be settled internally, saying that the U.S. role in fighting global terrorism is being subverted by our involvement. Murtha is a decorated Vietnam veteran who retired from the Marine Corps Reserve as a colonel in 1990.

Videotape Shows Bush Warned of Grave Dangers Shortly Before Katrina Struck

Video footage of the briefings given to President Bush and Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff in the days before Hurricane Katrina struck show that federal officials had warned that the storm could be catastrophic, breaching New Orleans' levees and overwhelming rescuers. The Associated Press obtained six days of video footage and transcripts of briefings and released one video showing a final briefing the day before Katrina struck.

On the tape, then-Federal Emergency Management Agency chief Michael Brown called the coming storm, quote, "a bad one, a big one," and said, "We're going to need everything that we can possibly muster, not only in this state and in the region, but the nation, to respond to this event." He also said he worried there weren't enough disaster teams to help the people going to the Superdome for shelter, saying, "I'm concerned about ... their ability to respond to a catastrophe within a catastrophe." Also on the tape, the National Hurricane Center's Max Mayfield said that it was unknown if the levees would be breached, but called it, quote, "a very, very grave concern."

Linked to the briefing at his Texas ranch, where he was vacationing, Bush didn't question the federal officials but sought to offer reassurance. He said, "I want to assure the folks at the state level that we are fully prepared to not only help you during the storm, but we will move in whatever resources and assets we have at our disposal after the storm."

The video seems to refute Bush's statement four days after Katrina struck when he said, "I don't think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees." Further, it also appears to contradict Homeland Security officials who've said the, quote, "fog of war" blinded them early on to the magnitude of disaster, since it shows them discussing threats and reviewing plans, aware of the historic disaster on the way.

Does this briefing video make you think the White House and Homeland Security officials were shading the truth when they said they didn't realize how bad the storm was going to be and were caught up in the "fog of war" early on?

Do you in fact think maybe Brown was the one who leaked this information to AP in an attempt to vindicate himself?

Jack Thompson weighs in on the CBS/Stern lawsuit.

Howard Stern’s Chief Nemesis Defends Him Against CBS

Jack Thompson, Howard Stern’s chief nemesis (“This lunatic lawyer in Miami got me off the air”) took the radio airwaves this morning and defended Stern in the face of the blockbuster lawsuit filed yesterday by CBS.

Thompson appeared on Clear Channel’s WFLA-AM in Orlando—a station off which Thompson knocked Stern in February 2004—to explain that CBS’s lawsuit against Stern is without merit, both on the facts and on the law.

The core allegation in the CBS suit, which seeks in excess of $200 million in damages from Stern, Stern’s agent Don Buchwald, and Sirius, is that Stern harmed CBS Radio (then known as Infinity) for promoting his move to Sirius for well over a year, thereby converting valuable CBS airtime to his own and Sirius’ use.

There are huge factual and legal problems with CBS’s argument, as Thompson outlined today on the radio:

First, CBS had every opportunity to “dump” anything Stern had to say about Sirius. In November 2004, Jack Thompson was part of a $3.5 million Consent Decree entered into between Viacom/Infinity and the Federal Communications Commission whereby Infinity promised to put into place and did install new and better technology to edit the Howard Stern Show in real time as it was being aired. Thus, Viacom/Infinity/CBS had in place the enhanced “dumping” capability to utilize the time delay to remove all references to Sirius and his announced move. CBS chose not to do that. CBS then chose not to remove Stern from the air for the promotion of Sirius, except for a paid one-day suspension last November.

Secondly, the reason why CBS chose not to edit Stern that is that Stern’s Arbitron ratings remained high and were arguably even enhanced by people tuning in to hear daily about Stern’s running feud with CBS and his move to Sirius. In other words, CBS actually used Stern’s discussion of the move to Sirius to make more money for CBS. CBS, however, now claims that Stern’s discussion of Sirius cost it money. Just the opposite is the case.

Thirdly, CBS is proceeding in this lawsuit under the bizarre notion that because Stern has made money--$200 million in accelerated payment of Sirius stock—that CBS is entitled to the extra money Stern has cleverly made. The measure of damages, however, in a lawsuit is based upon what the plaintiff has lost not what the defendant has made. CBS needs better lawyers, but Thompson learned that two years ago. CBS’s Steve Lerman at Leventhal, Senter and Lerman is a tactical idiot.

In sum, then, CBS used Stern and the “Sirius issue” to make money, not lose money, and because Stern personally made money in the process as well, the CBS suit looks like exactly what Stern says it is: “a personal vendetta by CBS’ Les Moonves.”

Finally, Viacom/Infinity/CBS has always, always been more legally and morally culpable for putting Howard Stern on the air than Stern himself, as it corporately decided to allow him, for more than twenty years, to mentally molest minors for money---money that went to the giant corporation which used Stern as a money machine.

Stern has always been unabashed in describing himself as “a pornographer who puts a pornographic radio show on the air.” Stern really can’t help being himself. Now CBS’s Les Moonves, like Claude Raines’ character in Casablanca, is saying “I’m shocked, shocked I tell you, to find out” what has been going on here?

Put another way, a pimp is more culpable than his prostitute. CBS pimped Howard Stern for two decades for all he was worth to them, and now they’re shocked to find he is a prostitute who has sold his wares to the highest bidder? Please.

The FCC is set shortly to hand down new decency fines against stations for airing indecency on the Howard Stern Show. Miami attorney Jack Thompson ought to know. He is the complainant, and he has received FCC notices indicating this will happen.

If anyone wants to know the underlying strategic reason CBS has sued Stern, this is why:

When the FCC hands down these new fines, some of which may be huge, CBS wants to be able to say “We were unable to control Stern to stop him from airing this stuff. We even couldn’t stop him from promoting Sirius.”

Good luck on that one, CBS. CBS Radio is clearly run by a bunch of liars, and they deserve precisely what they are going to get—everything from the FCC and nothing from Stern.

Bill Sammon joined me this morning to discuss "Strategery"

How George W. Bush defeated John Kerry, outwitted the media, and defended America at home and overseas

Strategery: How George W. Bush Is Defeating Terrorists, Outwitting Democrats, and Confounding the Mainstream Media by Bill Sammon

Strategery is the latest installment of Bill Sammon's triumphant series on the historic presidency of George W. Bush. First came Fighting Back, the riveting account of Bush's courageous handling of the tense period immediately after September 11; then there was Misunderestimated, which took the story of Bush's presidency up to the beginning of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Now Strategery picks up where Misunderestimated left off, tracing John Kerry's challenge to the President, the hard-fought and hard-won election, and the tumultuous year that followed -- in which George W. Bush would consistently (though usually without any credit at all from a virulently hostile liberal media ) outwit his foes at home and abroad.
